Twitter warns about a prank that locks users out of their accounts

@TwitterSupport is warning its users about a prank going around that is resulting in people being locked out of their accounts. The prank in question claims that changing your Twitter birthday to any day in 2007 will unlock a hidden color schemes menu in the Twitter app.

Of course, when you do this, you essentially tell Twitter that you are under 13 years old and are immediately locked out of your account since Twitter requires users to be 13 years of age.

The process of regaining access to your account involves going through a process to prove your actual age. For this, you have to reach out to Twitter Support and provide a government-issues identification document to prove your real age, according to The Verge.

WhatsApp Business app finally available for all iOS users

Twitter Support tweeted that users who were locked after changing their birthday should follow the instructions that were sent (presumably to the user’s registered email) soon after the change was made. If you’ve fallen for this Twitter prank, welcome to the internet in 2019.
